Macro shot of a new plant in my backyard after misting it. I underexposed by one stop which gave a much better star effect than the proper exposure. I also experimented with angle to get the sun's reflection right on the water droplets.

Nice macro - with DoF about tthe right place, but it is a bit troublesome that the closest area, bottom right, is not sharp. I thionk you could crop out the bottom without huting the image. NIce colors - effective lightinmg.

Interesting shot.
I only can make out one source of light judging by the shadows.
